Steven Inglima was hooked the first time a silver halide print magically came to life in the developer. From his first Brownie 127 film camera, the quest began to capture the things that mattered to him.
This lead to 37 years in the designing, manufacturing, and marketing component of the photographic industry. He has also professionally photographed commercial products, countless weddings and social events.
Steven has lectured throughout the US, run trade shows for manufacturers, written tech bulletins, and taught at many Naval Air Stations, Air Force Bases, NASA, the Pentagon, on 10 aircraft carriers, two underway at sea. Additionally, he’s had articles published, became an industry advisor for a number of trade organizations, as well as giving portfolio reviews.
He worked for, or as a consultant to; Nikon, GMI Photographic (Bronica, Sea&Sea, Philips, Paterson), Konica Digital Cameras, Megavision (digital backs), Horseman (Large Format), Schneider Optics, B+W Filters among others; and traveled internationally for these manufacturers.
In 2004, Steven was selected to be the administrator of the Explorers of Light program for Canon USA, coordinating the sponsored activities for 80+ professional photographers and printers. This included guiding their equipment choices, and assigning their lectures at trade shows, trade organizations, museums, galleries, camera clubs, etc. It remains one of his greatest honors to have formed lifelong relationships with many of the Explorers of Light, among of the most talented photographers and cinematographers in the US.
Steven remains a passionate photographic artist who wishes to share his years of knowledge and the joy of imaging.
